I believe this piece started out as an Springfield bayonet. Along the way someone decided to turn it into a 12'' trench knife. The conversion was done very professionally, the point of the blade is symmetrical on both sides, no unevenness. The handle guard has no hole for a rifle barrel, there is a release button, it is inoperable. The overall condition of the knife is a bit rough ( see photos). The blade has some pitting, as well as the guard, and butt. The wood handle is intact but a little loose. The inscription on the base of the blade is U S  518041, on one side and S A1912 with the flaming bomb on the other , the overall length is 12'' , the blade is 7 1/2''. For a 106 year old piece not bad. Contact me with any questions
